I posted one of these on another thread. I guess they belong here though.

Following is part of G-Town's commentary on the first pic from another thread. 0929471001579858697.jpg

"The White Freightliner/Freightliner COE (cabover) was basically the same box-like design from the mid-50's (post "Bullnose" style) until it ceased production in the late 90s. This model is (approximately) an early-mid 80s FLB. Hard to tell the exact year unless you look at the builders plate & serial number. I believe the paint job was factory applied, and in fantastic shape, all things considered. This style was in production throughout the 80s, until the final, more aerodynamic (really?) and more ergo design took place in the early 90s. There are numerous incredibly cool restorations of this style Freightliner and White Freightliner. Google Freightline FLB and you will quickly "see" what I mean. I have a couple of FLBs in my picture gallery from when I used to photograph trucks on display at NHTS Conventions."

Saw this one this morning. Hopefully it is interesting enough to provide some info about.

Freightliner Argosy, produced from 2007-current, primarily for export to Australia.

Peterbilt 359 conventional, produced in a couple of different versions from 1967-1987. I am guessing Annie’s is late 70s to early 80s.

I parked next to this truck at the Gateway Pilot truck stop in East St. Louis, IL this morning. Nothing really special about this Freightliner, until you look closer at the graphics. 3 Million Safe Miles is an amazing accomplishment!

Haha, yep~! National Guard finally came through. The rig was just up the road from Mansfield/Lahm Airport (Guard reserves station) yet it took them SIX days (or five, depending on who you ask) to get the driver out.

Thanks Annie...

The truck in the snow bank is an International Transtsr II, CO-4070-A; guessing late 70s, early 80s. Look at the trim beneath the drivers door...

Here is a similar truck I photographed at the American Truck Historical Society’s event in Valley Forge Pa (1999). Without the snow of course...

Hi Annie! You did write "get the driver out"..... is that why the National Guard - to extract a person, not just dig out the rig ?!?!?!shocked.png

When I first saw that picture I wondered if the driver left at some point or got avalanched in!
